...and I can't even stand it when people end their sentences with a preposition, but there! Right there in my own post title, I just did it. You see I was an English major, and I think I've said it before, but I also worked in book publishing. I have a thing for grammar. There's a fine line between being all grammatically correct and also being all casual in my writing so that it feels like it's just conversational, so the YOU feel, well like I am just chit-chatting with YOU! But fine, so there you have it - crafting is where it's at, no ifs, ands or buts about it!
I just completed another projected. I mean JUST. Now. At almost 3:00 a.m! I'm nuts, I know, I've already said so. I even hung it and as I got in bed with my laptop to write this, it fell. I didn't even care. I mean, I got up to make sure everything was okay and I put everything back in its place, but in the end all I cared about was that I had something cute and pretty and new, that I had made! Look at it.
I am loving how this came out. I found a small cookie sheet at the Dollar Tree. I spray painted it green, like an olive type green. Then I had this gold wood-gran paper that I had been longing to use and thought it would go perfectly. I had these pink paper roses from another one of my rose attempts (still trying, trying being the operative word, but obviously not there yet). The paper was cool. It was from a Martha Stewart pack where each pack that looks like bandanas, and this shade was a pink that was the perfect color compliment. Oh, and the cookie sheet didn't have the two holes in it for the ribbon. I drilled those with my handy dandy drill I use to make all my clocks. This was so fun and easy to make.
It's felt so good to be able to be creating every day. I hope that this can continue. I'm sure others around me think I'm crazy. I long for others with these creative juices. I need this outlet. That's for sure.
